Mum Mums

Aksel has a favorite snack..... Baby Mum Mums! They are a Japanese organic rice rusk (pretty much tasteless and all air, but we won't tell him). He knows what they are are soon as you pull one out of the cabinet or diaper bag. I have to admit -they come in quite handy when you are in the store with a young babe strapped in the shopping cart who needs something to occupy his attention. Our only present issue is that Aksel is starting to chow down on these little snacks a lot quicker than he used to!

Baby Baluga

Last week I took Aksel to a swim class our community pool offers for little ones, it is called Wee Woozles. It was a great time and great way to wear this little guy out before bedtime. He loved watching everyone else and then towards the end splashed like a wild man. He loves the water and never afraid to get right in!

Grandma Kris and Grandpa Scot gave Aksel the Little Tykes scooter and he has just recently started to ride it all by himself. It is the cutest watching him move around and making vroom vroom noises at times. He looks like such a big boy riding it without any help from us. Way to go buddy!!!!

9 Months...oh my!

Today Aksel is 9 months old....can you believe it!!! This little guy is BUSY...not just a little, but constantly. There other night I caught him clapping in his sleep if that says anything at all. He crawls, pulls himself up, cruises around furniture, climbs on Meriam, pounds on everything in sight, pulls down the curtains, pushes his stroller, plays with the dogs bowls, opens cabinets, watch everything/everyone around him, swing, so on and so forth...I think you get the picture. He has three teeth and one on the way, so the drool is free flowing. He loves going for walks, eating, reading, and we just started a story/music class at the library. Swim lessons will begin once it gets warmer. Happy 9 Month Birthday Aksman! We love you very much!

Busy June

June was a very busy month for us and we enjoyed many visitors. Scot and Kris came the first week, as well as Kari and Jonathan. Laura came the second week. Aunt Erica, Aunt, Jessica, Uncle Ryan, cousin dog Cody, Pat and Bob came at the end of the month. Of course everyone loved playing with Aksel and he loved all the attention. Annika loved all the extra help and hands!
